Larabar Recipe: Awesome!

I love Larabars. They are healthy, raw, vegan, gluten free, preservative free, and kosher. Great for any diet, and kids love them!
Larabars are very easy to make, and they can be quite expensive to buy! Check out this base recipe:

Portions: about 6 bars

  • 1 cup nuts 
    • Almonds, walnuts, pecans, cashews, pistachios, peanuts, hazelnuts, etc.
  • 1 cup sweet dried fruit
    • Dates, raisins, figs, prunes, etc. 
  • 1 cup filling (optional)
    • Dried cherries, dried blueberries, dried apricot, dried pineapple, cranberries, goji berries, more chopped nuts, dried coconut, chocolate chips, coffee beans, cacao nibs, shredded carrot, etc.  
  • 2 - 4 tbsp flavoring (optional)
    •  Cacao, vanilla, cinnamon, citrus zest and juice, ginger, mint, cloves, coconut oil.

In your food processor, mix together fruit and nuts until a sticky, workable dough is formed.  Add flavoring, and process well.  Add fillings, and pulse until combined - being careful not to wreck the texture.  Shape into six equal sized bars, and wrap in parchment paper or plastic wrap.  If you're in a hurry, you can shape the dough into eight to twelve balls, instead.  Lärabars should keep in the refrigerator or freezer in an airtight container for up to a month.
